Our team at G.F. Sprague installed a brand new cedar shake roof onto this gorgeous historic barn in Milton, Massachusetts! In this project, we installed cedar shingles after this asphalt roof was experiencing leaking. In addition to installing cedar shakes, we installed a copper ridge cap onto the peak of the roof. Copper ridge caps prevent algae and moss growth on the cedar shingles. Underneath the cedar shingles is a breather and ice and water shield to prevent moisture and water entry into the interior.
